York Way is known for many things but shopping isn’t one of them. To provide something to do in Kings Cross at the weekend Felicity and Lis at the Cross Kings will be holding a charity festival next weekend for Educate for Life – details below. If you have any ideas, suggestions or concerns (especially if you live nearby) drop them a mail by clicking here. Cross Kings say as follows:
‘We will be running a festival at Cross Kings on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September. As part of this, we are planning to hold a small outdoor market on the set back area of pavement running parallel to the length of the wall which separates York Court Garden from York Way.
‘The main emphasis of the festival, besides showcasing excellent up and coming artists, is to raise awareness and money for the charity Educate for Life. They will have a stall with information about the charity outside along with a merchandise stall so all the musicians, poets and film makers can promote their talents. There will be a coconut shy, face painting, a hat and balloon art stall, mask stall, live caricatures, palm reading and hopefully a clothes stall.
‘The aim is to provide something fun and interactive for the local community – hopefully kids included! – whilst extending our festival atmosphere and being able to raise awareness for an amazing charity.’
Location details here. This prompts the question why we haven’t had a festival in Kings Cross for ages. Face painting always conjures up images of Phoenix Nights for me – remember to use washable paints….
